Alternative Artistic Narratives on Iran

An Evening with Cineblend and Dancing on the Edge

In the context of the Framer Framed exhibition Crisis of History #3: Beyond History, we will talk with and show clips from artists from Iran who live in or outside of Iran. How do these artists create alternative narratives to the dominant representation? And are these artists caught between the Iranian official discourse and the Western discourse on Iran? Is there such a thing as a dominant discourse or are there several discourses that contradict each other? Which audiences do the artists (want to) address?

With amongst others: Barbad Golshiri, Reza Allamehzadeh, Nafiss Nia, Ehsan Fardjadniya, Negin Kianfar.
